Murch is amazing. My kid is having so much fun! There is one bad teacher out of a lot of staff but other than that Murch is amazing.

I used to go to Murch and hated everyday of school. I never wanted to go and I went there from Kindergarten to 5th grade and never liked. However, I learned well and was in a good place after Murch.

I love Murch so much because it cares about each student's education, very open and communicative with the parents, also has a vastly diverse school environment.

My son is a third grader at Murch. We came from private schools. I was told that Murch was a great school. I have to say that I am disappointed. There is a lack of language arts. The teacher that he has is inexperienced and is a poor teacher. He is not being challenged. Try Lafayette instead.

Our 4 year old started at Murch in pre-K this year, and we have nothing but praise for the quality of the teaching, the organization, the PTA and the community spirit at the school. Truly outstanding!
